Quick Hitters: Cards Bust Bulls, 64-38

Posted on Jan 12 2013 - 10:11pm by Ethan Moore

UofL’s defense gored the Bulls all game long


*Congrats to Peyton Siva, who scored 17 points and became UofL’s 64th 1,000-point scorer

*Gorgui was being Gorgui as he posted another double-double of 12 points and 16 boards

*The Cards blasted the Bulls on the backboard, out-rebounding them 49-24

*Behanan came off the bench to grab 12 rebounds and score 7 points in juts 18 minutes of action

*Russ struggled shooting from the field and had more ‘And-1′ moments in his only non-double digit outing of the year of 8 points

*The Cards played masterful defense, now going on three consecutive halves, limiting USF to just 38 points on 26% shooting (12-45) and 18% from 3 (3-17)

*The Cards’ D was strong while the shooting was not. The Cards shot only  38% (23-60) from the field and 17% from three (3-18), but were 88% from the FT line (15-17)

*Its sucks to watch teams like USF play boring milk-the-clock-on-every-possession basketball, but UofL forced them to run a little more, by jumping out to a 17-3 lead

*Sit back and imagine the Cards playing like they did in the first half EVERY NIGHT; nobody would beat them

*If Michigan losses to Ohio State tomorrow, the Cards will be #1 for just the second time in school history; the Buckeyes and Wolverines go at it at 1:30 on CBS

    The Polls mean nothing this time of the year, and only matter latter when the selection committee cares to notice them; that said, after watching UofL go so many years, with so many great teams, and after watching them twice win it all and never get a number one ranking, I will welcome and cherish this week's Poll if we get boosted up to #1.
